Dinosaur Fun!

Dinosaur Fun!Team Boys and Team Girls were each given a "cache" of dinosaur bones to reconstruct, just like in our read aloud, My Daniel.  By working together, each team completed their dinosaur, hung it in the hallway for others to see, and even had time to be a little silly!

Fun Friday

Friday is "Fun Friday" at CIS.  We play music during the lunch period and sometime a few games.  Last week there was a conga line in procession.  Today it was the Hokey Pokey.  We like to have fun but not get too wound up as math class is next.

Fire Prevention Month

Fire Prevention MonthMrs. Dickey's Class
Making a plan for fire safety at home is very important! Fourth graders were instructed to go home and talk to their families about what they need to do in the case of a fire. I think the students' favorite part was trying on the fire gear. We all looked and walked a little silly! Thanks to the Chadron Fire Department for volunteering your time to visit and for all you have done for our community!

Tree Planting

From Mrs. Piercy's Classroom

As part of the Greener Nebraska Towns celebration, students at CIS took part in a tree planting ceremony at their school with Nebraska's First Lady, Sally Ganem.  The First Lady talked to the students about the importance of trees to our community.  Seven students assisted her in planting a burr oak tree, which will be a nice addition to the trees previously planted by CIS students.
